Good point re: solar panels in the median. There are those amazing photos from Germany where the sides and median of their highway is absolutely covered in solar panels. Now THAT is appropriate usage of marginal space! It's crazy that our regulatory bodies would rather desert be destroyed than have truly marginal space be utilized. Yargh

But then the regulatory bodies might have to look at it from their cars. Which would ruin the esthetic experience of commuting. Whereas chances are pretty good they've got no interest in seeing the desert.

And poor Germany, I suppose they've got no wildlands left to destroy. Oh wait. What's on the other side of that solar panel? And who told Germany they had any sun?!?

Yes well perhaps they could look at those miles of solar panels with pride, knowing they did right for their people and the planet!

Alas, it appears that the regulatory bodies' stocking stuffers will be lumps of coal yet again.

Many towns surrounding me are getting "Drill-baby-Drilled!"

Steal Your Freedom back, crush the Petrol Industry, like me and my town just did!
